SP government back behind and says now that it will keep Project Guri | SP


The São Paulo state government has stepped back and said on Monday it will keep the Guri Project and that there will be no layoffs. According to the state administration, no child will be left unattended.

Last Saturday (30), the government had given further information on the issue, publicly announcing that it would close project units due to lack of funds. Before the news, students of the interior mobilized in the social networks.

Now the government says it will no longer close the project, but that it will need to make some spending adjustments. Across the state, Projeto Guri has 400 poles that offer music, singing and other activities for 50,000 children and adolescents.

During the week, officials from the Campinas, Presidente Prudente, Itapetininga, São Carlos and Araraquara regions received prior notice that they will close their activities.

The Social Organization (OS) Friends of the Guri Association, which manages the project on the coast and inland did not inform how many units will be closed, but confirmed the advance notice to the part of the employees.

The Secretary of Culture said that it will reduce vacancies because of the cut of R $ 150 million in the budget.
